CLOSED! Kiddie Catch-All Review & Giveaway
Picture this familar situation: You are driving around, trying to get your errands done, pick up kids from school, etc. As you are trying to get to your destination, you hear "MAMA! I dropped my book!" So you look to see if it's clear enough to try to reach back and pick it up. You strain and wiggle, and finally get the beloved book. Within just a few minutes of handing the book back to your little one, "MAMA! I dropped my cup!" Oh no, not again! Does this sound all too-familar? It sure does to me!
Sometimes I feel like I spend more time in my car than I do anywhere else. And if you have little kids, then you know what it's like to have an overload of toys and things to entertain them when driving. My hubby is always telling me that there's just too much stuff in the backseat. What he doesn't realize is that if the kids don't have stuff back there to play with, then they can be very distracting when I am driving. So, I tell the hubs "It's a safety precaution!" Maybe that's just my way of excusing the cluttered car. hahaha!
Needless to say, when I was contacted by the great folks at Kiddie Catch-All, it was like a dream come true! The Kiddie Catch-All is this great little accessory that fits right onto your kiddo's carseat. It is made with durable plastic, and has a detachable mesh-like basket. You can fill it up with all your kiddo's favorite toys, snacks, and sippee cup. If they drop something, they can just reach into the Kiddie Catch-All and find something else.
That's right, no more straining and twisting to reach those fallen favorite toys. This basket has been a life-saver for my family. It seriously has made our trips so much easier and less-stressful. Also, I would hate to think that I could actually have a wreck while trying to grab a dropped toy.
I will add that with so many different designs of carseats these days, it may not fit your particular carseat. Good news is, on the Kiddie Catch-All website, they have listed a bunch of types that they found will or will not fit. You can check out the list HERE.
With that said, I found other ways to use the Kiddie Catch-All. Even if your kids are bigger and not in a carseat anymore, Kiddie Catch-All can still come in handy for you. You can also attach to an arm rest, or another part of your car. My son is a "tween" and he loves the Kiddie Catch-All to put his portable game system in, plus his sunglasses and drink. Even the adults could find it kind handy, especially when going on a vacation or road trip. These are based on my experiences that I tried out myself on my vehicle. It may or may not work with yours.
I really love the Kiddie Catch-All and highly recommend it. It also is easily washable. All you have to do is pop the mesh basket off from the plastic ring, and stick in the washing machine. Easy peezy! This is something that will make your life a little less hectic, which in my book, is something much needed.
Kiddie Catch-All was invented by a mother with a wiggly 1 year-old. I personally think that moms know exactly what works and can make life better with products. On that note, I think it's very important to support the mothers that have created a great product. Have you seen their commercials on the HUB channel?
